Did you know that there are only three countries that do not use the metric system?
1. United States
Thats it. Just the three of us.

Does this seem like a bad thing to anyone? Not me. Liberia and Myanmar are pretty much isolated from the world community and therefore have no real pressure to change. Obviously this is not true for the US. The American economy is extremely intertwined with the metric world. But do we bow under pressure to change to the metric system? Hell no! We don’t need it. We have gone on just fine without it and we pull it off because the US is the top dog. The US is the president of the Hair-Club-For-Men and there will be no elections.
The US will never switch to the metric system because we don’t have to. Not as long as we are a super power, anyway.
